Bits and Pieces
10 x 33cm, hand coloured etching/aquatint, edition 20

This series of etchings was created in response to the brief for the National Trust Safe Keeping Exhibition in May 2012. There are many bits of china, rusted iron and other bits which have been discarded by the former inhabitants of our old convent. We often find these pieces. They are fascinating fragments of other people's lives. The plates are recycled aluminium.
